Dear DC LERA Members,

I hope that you got a chance to attend the fascinating and wide-ranging set of speakers at our luncheons during the first half of 2015.  We covered the SEIU's project about
the future of work and the labor movement, the rising interest in apprenticeship training in the United States,
the 1877 railroad strike, the future of social security, contemporary challenges for the wages and hours division of the Department of Labor, and a global perspective of work and human development.  

We have our summer hiatus in July and August.  In September, we will resume our speaker series.  I just want to let you know that we welcome suggestions for future topics and speakers.  Please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Enjoy the summer!
Steve Silvia
